This program allows you to monitor ipchains/iptables output in realtime. It supports both logging to a file/stdout and/or to tcpdump format capture logs. It also supports security features such as running non-root, and chrooting itself. This program has been known in the past as "Firestorm Firewall Monitor", however it shares no common code with firestorm.

Firewall Monitor is Copyright © 2001-2002 Gianni Tedesco.
Firewall monitor runs only under Linux due to the fact that it takes advantage of a Linux kernel specific functionality.
To run this on Linux 2.4 you will need the NETLINK iptables target which you can find in the latest version of iptables which (as far as I know) most distributions aren't shipping yet. If you run a redhat based distro you can try my rpms.
